The time has come for a coherent, multi-step strategy for rolling back Obamacare. It is not enough for conservatives to focus just on the website problems, or to wait and hope the misnamed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) collapses on its own. The websites will ultimately get fixed well enough to function, and the “just wait” strategy underestimates both the appeal the new entitlement may hold for many and the serious damage that is being done to the private insurance market, whose viability is the foundation of any alternative to government mandates.
Friends of IWV– I thought I'd share some pretty exciting news about IWV's President and CEO Heather Higgins. She’s dismissing it as really not being about her, but a testament to the power of our issues and arguments, but I still wanted you to know that she has been recognized as one of Campaigns & Elections 50 Most Influential People, and we at IWF and IWV are very proud of her and our organizations' work.

Missourians might want to tune out the barrage of political ads that flow from their dubious distinction of being both a presidential and hotly-contested Senatorial battleground. Yet they can't ignore the consequences of the policy decisions being made by their political representatives. One place they see those consequences firsthand is at the gas pump.
On behalf of Independent Women's Voice, I want to congratulate the following signers of the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge who were victorious in their respective primary contests.
As President Obama’s poll numbers have slipped over recent months, Democrats are trying to build a narrative that there is a Republican "War on Women." The White House and the Democratic Party, along with outmoded "feminist" organizations, are betting that they can goose turnout in November and the Democratic vote among women by fear-mongering on "women's issues."
IWV Congratulates ObamaCare Repeal Pledge Signer Ted Cruz on Securing Run-off Spot in Texas GOP Senate Primary
Last night, Ted Cruz became just the most recent candidate who may not have been the establishment favorite, but who was a signer of the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge and did well in his primary. After last night’s returns, on July 31st, Cruz will face David Dewhurst in a runoff election for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate. We offer our congratulations to him on securing a spot in the run-off contest.
The ObamaCare Repeal Pledge is resonating because voters want to know which candidates for office are serious about waking the talk to see that ObamaCare is fully and completely repealed.
